raccoon removal markham

Markham, ON

Markham is a city in the Regional Municipality of York. One of many cities within the Greater Toronto Area. Markham’s population as of 2016 was recorded at approximately 329’000. Markham was originally an agricultural community. Wildlife presence has been an issue in the Markham area since the beginning. During it’s development, modernization, and deforestation the natural habitats in Markham were reduced over time.

Yet instead of diminishing wildlife population, raccoons, squirrels, and skunks learned and adapted to our way of life. In some senses our way of life is almost like a free restaurant service for wildlife. Weekly compost bins left outside the night before city pickup serve as food for raccoons. Squirrels instead of chewing homes into once plentiful trees now chew into attics of homes, similarly with raccoons. SIA Wildlife Control provides safe, insured, and accurate inspection and raccoon / squirrel removal services in Markham Ontario. See our services page for all our service coverage.

Do you hear noises in your attic? let our technicians know what type of noises you hear and when, and our technicians can investigate and let you know exactly what you’re dealing with. Some examples are heavy noises heard in the attic. This noise can be explained as someone walking on the roof, but it’s very loud. The noise is usually associated with raccoons. They are notorious noise markers. But that is not enough to make us believe it is a raccoon. A full inspection of the roof and identifying the type of roof entry damage is required to determine the animal involved.

Raccoons are a curious wildlife in Markham, Ontario. They like to investigate their surroundings and are always on the look out for opportunities in finding a new home. This is more so accurate in the baby season starting in March. During the month of March raccoons have their babies. In preparation of their newborns they move between homes to find the most opportune and easy entry point. You may think that you have bad luck with animals breaking into your home, but it’s just simplicity that the raccoon has chosen your home vs your neighbors. See prevention to learn how you can avoid being a raccoon removal target in Markham.

Raccoon Feces

Raccoons are the main carriers of Roundworms or otherwise known as Baylisascaris Procyonis. Raccoon feces should be left alone unless they are in a vicinity where they can cause harm. For example; Front door steps, Backyard where pets or children play. We highly recommend asking for professional help. If you will take on the cleanup role yourself, educate yourself on raccoon feces removal thoroughly and wear proper protective equipment.

Raccoon Removal Markham

Raccoon, and squirrel removal is typically done similarly. It involves the installation of a galvanized carbon steel mesh which does not rust. Over time the mesh dulls in color and blends in better with the home. Our 1-way system is the best method of removing these unwanted nuisance animals from your home. It’s the most humane method which does not involve the harming or stressing of any animal involved in the removal.

We install the animal specific 1-way door into the meshing which is then installed over the entry area of your home. This allows the animal to leave for it’s daily needs and prevents it from re-entering into your attic. Our work is then warrantied for a period of 2 years. However you will be protected for as long our work remains untouched by human interference. Therefor you should always tell your roofers to re-install our work just as it was when they’ve finished replacing your roof.

If for any reason we are not able to install our work, or wildlife proof your home. We will trap the animal  in question. This is the least desired method as it stresses the animal, and certain law requirements must be met. An example of such occasion is a broken garage door where a raccoon is now residing in. Call us today to see which method best suits your needs.


If you hear chewing or running like something is scattering in the attic very quickly you may be dealing with a squirrel. Keep in mind that squirrels are very destructive. We would personally choose raccoons over squirrels. If left unattended, squirrels can chew joists and displace and remove insulation over time. The worst case scenario, squirrels will chew wiring and potentially cause an electrical fire in the attic. No one wants that, let us help you remove your problem whatever it may be, humanely and safely.

Squirrels are numerous in all cities and areas of the Greater Toronto Area, not only in Markham. Squirrels are categorized as the most destructive in the wildlife removal industry because of their tendencies to chew at everything they come in contact with. This can be very bad when a squirrel is inside your attic. Over time squirrels will chew at the roof support, electrical wires, and displace your insulation as they use it for shelter. Electrical wires which are exposed can potentially spark fires inside the attic. Displaced insulation can lead to the loss of heat or cooling within their appropriate seasons which will result in higher utility bills.

Babies are born in the months of March, and then again in August-September. In the baby season the use of one-way doors is not morally correct or humane. Which makes one-way doors inapplicable for the duration of the babies reaching adulthood. Squirrel removal within the baby season can become more expensive due to the additional steps and care needed to remove the babies physically and reunite them with their mother. SIA Wildlife Control provides these services safely, insured, and accurately to all cities within the Greater Toronto Area. Don’t wait until baby season to make a stand against your squirrel problem, call us today for an inspection, squirrel removal, or information.

Squirrel Removal Markham

Squirrel removal is done similar to raccoon removal. A 3″ squared one-way device is installed on a 16 gauge carbon steel meshing, which is generously placed over the entry hole on the roof or it’s respectable location. The one-way device allows the squirrel to exit effortlessly and will prohibit re-entry upon it’s return. And to discourage chewing in nearby areas which they certainly will try, we provide the extra amount of mesh surrounding the affected area. Rest assured that we perform our work safely, insured, and accurately.

Our work comes with a 2 year warranty. It protects the area from all kinds of wildlife entry in the future. We cannot however provide warranty for areas we have not sealed. Squirrels and raccoons are smart, once they find a way into the attic they learn and know that they can achieve similar results in other weak areas of the roof. This is why our technicians will always offer a prevention package once they’ve pin pointed the vulnerable areas of your roof.

Squirrels have become known for their persistence and destructive nature. A squirrel chews regularly throughout it’s lifetime. The reason for this is that because their teeth grows 6 inches per year. When a squirrel chews through your roof, it leaves a hole on your roof. Rain and snow may enter your attic and damage your ceiling. A squirrel can chew through wood, plastic, aluminum making your electrical wiring defenseless and your insulation displaced. A timely squirrel removal is recommended at this point to prevent damage to your home.
